How does COPD cause acidosis?
11 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
Acidosis occurs due to increase in acidic ions (like hydrogen ions) in blood and body fluids, the concentration of which depends on carbon dioxide (CO2). Normally, CO2 is released in body from metabolism of carbon containing food. Under normal respiratory function, this CO2 formed is exhaled via airways, but, in COPD patients, during acute episode of respiratory failure, CO2 is not effectively washed out via airways. This leads to increase in concentration of CO2 inside the body fluid leading to synthesis of H+ ions which are derived from CO2 by enzymes in the body. This increase in H+ ions in body fluids and blood lead to development of acidosis.
